Yes, of course, Thierry.  First I'm trying to understand why I am now 
down from 2 of 5 working to 1 of 5 working and without touching php, 
pear or apache.  The only thing that I did on the one that no longer 
works was run portupgrade -a , mergemaster and reset the machine to run 
today's kernel.  The one left that works has an old kernel from May 19 
that I am now backing up and will copy to one of the machines that 
doesn't work just for kicks.  I can't imagine that the kernel is the 
problem but hope springs erternal, as they say ;)

Thanks, again, Thierry,
